The persistence of poverty - in rich and poor countries alike - is one of the most serious problems facing humanity. But what is poverty and how much of it is there around the globe?

John Micklewright will present Professor Sir Tony Atkinson's new book, Measuring Poverty around the World, which he and Andrea Brandolini edited after Sir Tony's death.

The book talk will be followed by a discussion.
